Unitard Not Required: Go Backstage at Cirque du Soleil

20110322_cirquejpg

This spring, visitors to Las Vegas can run away and join the Cirque (but not for peanuts).  For $260, a select few will get a small-group pre-show backstage tour to either O (at the Bellagio) or The Beatles’ Love (at the Mirage). You’ll also receive an Insider Access VIP lanyard, special reserved seats for the show, and front-of-line privileges in the concession line and at the hotels’ nightclubs after the show.

On the fence about taking the tour?  Here’s a Life.com photo gallery of the backstage scene at a Cirque du Soleil show—acrobats rehearsing a tricky move, clowns at rest, outlandish-costume repair—that gives you an inkling of how thrilling it could be to witness in person.   (Get this: during each performance of The Beatles’ Love, the 68 performers go through 331 multi-piece costumes and 110 wigs!  Kind of puts getting two kids ready for school into perspective.)


The Insider Access Experience is available for $260, subject to availability, through BestOfVegas.com.  Tickets for the performances alone start at $116.
